        "Cedar Lodge", Ipswich, Queensland; the residence of Abraham Fitzgibbon, first Commissioner and Chief Engineer of the Queensland Railways.

      Circa 1865. Watercolour and pencil on paper, 150 x 210 mm, an unmounted leaf from a sketchbook; unsigned; verso inscribed in ink in a nineteenth century hand 'The Birthplace of Florence Isabelle Fitz-Gibbon, Cedar Lodge, Ipswich, Queensland'; also inscribed, in the same hand, 'Returned to our dear Belle'; in fine condition, the tiny crease at top right edge pre-dating the work. The Irish-born railway engineer Abraham Fitzgibbon (or Fitz-Gibbon, 1823-1887) arrived in Queensland from New Zealand in June 1863. On 30 September he was appointed first Commissioner for Railways in the Colony and Chief Engineer of the Southern and Western Railway. Fitzgibbon's choice of a narrow gauge for the railway was somewhat controversial, but his proposal was accepted and construction began almost immediately, with the first operations of the Queensland Railways opening in 1865. Fitzgibbon was based in Ipswich, and the last of his five children, Florence Isabelle, was born at his residence, Cedar Lodge, on 19 December 1865. Florence's mother was Abraham's English-born wife, Isabelle (née Stovin), whom Abraham had married in Racine, Wisconsin, in 1853; she is the 'Belle' to whom the inscription on the back of this watercolour refers. Fitzgibbon's contract with the Queensland Railways was terminated at his own request in July 1867. His letter to the Brisbane Courier, dated at Ipswich, July 27 1867, was published on 30 July and attempted to dispel rumours that his contract had been cancelled by the government. Fitzgibbon returned to England with his family prior to 1868. The Brisbane suburb of Fitzgibbon is named after him. This competent watercolour sketch by an accomplished amateur artist depicts the Fitzgibbon family outside their Ipswich residence. Based on the fashion worn by the woman and two young children who are standing with a horse outside the house, the work dates to around 1865. During the family's time at Ipswich, Florence Isabelle had only two surviving older siblings: her sister Constance (born July 1855) and brother Robert (born August 1859). These are the two children depicted with their mother, Belle. Mrs. Fizgibbon appears to be wearing a maternity dress, which would firmly date the sketch to late 1865, shortly before Florence's birth. The top-hatted gentleman in the carriage at left is undoubtedly Abraham Fitzgibbon himself - the artist has even included the detail of his distinctive Abraham Lincoln-style beard (a photographic portrait of Fitzgibbon is held in the John Oxley Library). Although the artist is not identified, the wording of the inscriptions on the back suggests that the sketch was probably made by a female neighbour who had befriended Belle while the Fitzgibbons were living in Ipswich.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1865 : 1865 Original Paperback Wisden, Facs Spine, 2nd Edition!

      1865. Hi, This lot is an 1865 Original Paperback Wisden. It has an expertly made facsimile spine and is an original 2nd Edition Wisden. It is in Good Condition. I was proud to own this book for years (hence how I can offer it at such a low price) but I have now purchased an original with original spine-ish so my book is up for sale, the covers here have some marks, , a bit of light staining to the front cover but not inside the book. The rear cover has some wear too. The first page has a stamp from the Sydney Pardon Estate which is a nice bonus. The spine holds the book together very well and so is tightly bound. Inside the book is nice and bright and clean, a very rare book. It is quite a bit shorter than my 1864 but so is my new replacement, must have been cut fine back then.

        Autograph letter signed "L. Ds."

      "Outside the theatre (for which Delibes wrote nearly all his music) his most notable work was as a composer of choruses, now undeservedly neglected. His output of songs was relatively small and that of instrumental and church music almost negligible. His cantata Alger (1865) attracted much attention at the time but has lain in obscurity since. Despite his poor record at the Conservatoire his workmanship was of the highest order; he had a natural gift for harmonic dexterity and a sure sense of orchestral colour, and nothing in his music is out of place. He was a disciplined composer, and it is tempting to see in the exquisite pastiche dances that he composed in 1882 for Hugo's Le roi s'amuse not just a sharp ear for style but a genuine feeling for the world of 17th-century French classicism, later to be espoused with such ardour by Saint-Saëns, d'Indy and Debussy." Hugh Macdonald in Grove Music Online.. 3 pp. of a bifolium. Small octavo. Dated "Thursday morning." In French (with translation). Delibes would like to see his friend to discuss some issue of importance. He also mentions several prominent musical figures in Paris: the baritone Jacques Bouhy; Philippe Gille, the co-librettist of Delibes's opera, Lakmé; Halanzier, a director at the Paris Opera; and Léon Carvalho, director of the Opéra-Comique. "In spite of everything, Carvalho wants all the same to go ahead and at full steam... When one speaks to him of waiting... he jumps to the ceiling and does not accept any hesitation. This is very embarrassing." Slightly worn and creased.

        Album of Albumen Photographs

      Twelve albumen photographs, circa 1865-75, each mounted on card with letterpress titles, images 7 x 8 ½ inches (or the reverse), mounts 13 ½ x 12 inches. Contemporary Welsh green half morocco, pebbled cloth, gilt-ruled, gilt-lettered "VIEWS IN CALIFORNIA" on the front cover, smooth spine gilt ruled, binder's ticket of B. R. S. Frost of Aberdare, Wales. Light rubbing to joints. Provenance: inscription on front free endpaper: "Daniel Rees / from his brother William / November 14th 1876.". A suberb series of images from the early period of photography in the Yosemite Valley. The images bear striking resemblance to many taken by Eadweard Muybridge, but lack attribution. Muybridge, along with photographers Carleton Watkins and Charles Weed (who may also be responsible for these images), did much to expand the wider appreciation for the natural beauty of Yosemite and its spectacular geology. The subjects here are quintessential features of the Valley, and represent its grandeur from tree to rock, and from water to sky. This album clearly was prepared for special presentation given the nature of its binding and the hand letterpress captioning on the mounts. Its Welsh binding and presentation inscription may again point to the British-artist Muybridge, who visted Yosemite in 1867 and 1872. The subjects comprise: 1) Three Brothers (some spotting to mount) 2) Bridal Veil Fall 3) Nevada Fall 4) Grizzly Giant 5) Clouds' Rest 6) Yo-semite Falls 7) North and South Dome from Glacier Point (silvering to dark areas of image) 8) Mirror Lake 9) Yo-Semite Falls From Glacier Point 10) El Capitan 11) Vernal Fall 12) Yo-semite Valley from Inspiration Point.

        History of the Indian Tribes of North America,

      Philadelphia: Rice, Rutter & Co.,, 1865. with biographical sketches and anecdotes of the principal chiefs. Embellished with one hundred and twenty portraits from the Indian Gallery in the War Department at Washington. 3 volumes, large octavo (262 x 163 mm). Publisher's deluxe binding of brown morocco over bevelled boards, spines gilt lettered, blind ruled and with a blind "Aldine leaf" motif in compartments, sides blind stamped with a large ornamental panel, all edges gilt, yellow coated endpapers. 120 hand-coloured lithograph plates by J. T. Bowen, mostly after Charles Bird King. Neat contemporary ownership inscription of ?"Langerfeld" on front free endpapers. A few minor abrasions to bindings, a touch of foxing in places. An excellent set. Fifth octavo edition, published in the year of the disastrous Smithsonian fire which destroyed the original oils paintings from which the plates were copied, so their appearance in this work preserves the only known likeness of many of the most prominent Native American leaders of the early 19th century; editions in octavo were first published 1848–50, following the folio edition of 1836-44. A magnificent record of Native American dignitaries - "the most colourful portraits of Indians ever executed" (Howes). McKenney, who was Superintendent of Indian trade from 1816-1822 and headed the US Bureau of Indian Affairs from 1824-1830, collaborated with James Hall, the Illinois journalist, lawyer, state treasurer and from 1833 Cincinnati banker, to produce this famous work. The text, which was written by Hall based on information supplied by McKenney, takes the form of a series of biographies of leading figures amongst the Indian nations, followed by a general history of the Native Americans. The work is now famous for its colour plate portraits of the chiefs, warriors and women of the various tribes, faithful copies of original oils by Charles Bird King painted from life in his studio in Washington (McKenney commissioned him to record the visiting Indian delegates) or worked up by King from the water-colours of the young frontier artist, James Otto Lewis. The lithography and hand-colouring were entrusted to the distinguished lithographer J. T. Bowen, best known for his hand-coloured octavo edition of another landmark American publication, Audubon's Birds of America (1839-44).

Folio. With a letterpress table. Modern boards.

      Cf. O'Reilly, Calédoniens, p. 11; not in WorldCat; Kroepelien; O'Reilly & Reitman. Extremely rare first edition of a regulation concerning the import of food, materials and passengers from the French city Bordeaux to the French colonies Tahiti and New Caledonia. It consists of 29 articles, followed by a table showing the possible routes from Bordeaux to one of the colonies, along with export products and their units. Spaces are left blank in both the text and the table for shipping information, which the shippers apparently sent to the ministry at the last minute, so that it had to be filled in as the books were distributed. The treaty was valid for three years, starting on 1 November 1865 and ending on the same date in 1868. O'Reilly note what seems to be this regulation, stating that Armand-Louis Ballande (1817-1882) ordered Bordeaux to serve as starting point for all transport from France to the colonies Tahiti and Caledonia, for a period of three years. His account disagrees with the present book only in stating that the period began in October 1866, rather than November 1865. Ballande was a French maritime merchant and ship owner, who, seeing the potential of the islands, was requested by the French government to organize the transport and trade routes. We could locate only one other copy, in the library of the "Centre culturel Tjibaou". In very good condition, with only a few small spots. Title-label on spine slightly damaged.

        William T. Sherman’s Special Field Orders No. 15 – 40 Acres to Newly Freed Families

      1865 - Printed Document, Unsigned. Special Field Orders, No. 15. January 16, 1865. Headquarters, Military Division of the Mississippi: Savannah. 2 pp. 5 x 8 in. With a closely related document: JOHN G. FOSTER. Printed Document, Signed by William L.M. Burger as Assistant Adjutant General to Major General Foster. General Order No. 8, Affirming and Implementing Sherman's Special Order No. 15. January 25, 1865. Hilton Head, S.C. 1 p. 5 x 8 in. With General John Foster's Implementation Order, Signed by AAG of First Regiment, New York Engineers, Who Saw Extensive Action during the War. Although the order does not actually mention mules, Sherman later ordered that the army could lend mules to the new settlers, providing the origin of the common phrase, "40 acres and a mule." In one development arranged by General Foster, the Freedmen's Colony of Roanoke Island, 2200 freedmen had settled on household plots. The families who settled these lands were devastated when, soon after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Johnson revoked Sherman's orders, stripping the emancipated slaves of their homes and in many cases their only source of income. When the Army abandoned the colony under Johnson's presidency, most of the freedmen had to return to the mainland in search of work. Historical BackgroundSherman's landmark military order, issued following his 1864 "March to the Sea," was aimed at providing stability for the millions of formerly enslaved Americans who had been formally emancipated in 1863. The Special Orders set aside 400,000 acres of land confiscated from slave holders in Georgia, South Carolina, and Florida for distribution to those, "now made free by the acts of war and the Proclamation of the President of the United States." The orders outlined the method by which these lands would be distributed: "Whenever three respectable negroes, heads of families, shall desire to settle on land, and shall have selected for that purpose and island or locality clearly defined, within the limits above designated, the Inspector of Settlements and Plantations will himself, or by such subordinate officer as he may appoint, give them a license to settle such lands. The three parties named will subdivide the land, under the supervision of the Inspector. so that each family shall have a plot of not more than (40) forty acres of tillable ground."Major General John G. Foster affirmed Sherman's orders on January 25, 1865, in his own "General Orders No. 8," and went even further, outlining the specific protections to be offered to the "negro Settlers" and the geographical boundaries covered by Sherman's orders.ConditionBoth neatly cut at left margin, previously bound, slight toning. Orders No. 15 has soiling along the very edge on right. Orders No. 8 has a single vertical crease.John Gray Foster (1823-1874) served with distinction during the Civil War. In 1862 -1863 he commanded the Department of North Carolina. After President Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, he appointed a Congregational minister, Horace James, to help freedmen prepare for independent life, and developed the Freedmen's Colony of Roanoke Island. After the war, in 1869, he wrote the definitive treatise on underwater demolition.William L. M. Burger, the A.A.G. who signed General Orders No 8, served in the 1st Regiment, New York Engineers. His unit saw extensive action in Sherman's Expedition to Port Royal, S. C., the capture of Forts Walker and Beauregard, Port Royal Harbor, and Hilton Head, S. C., the capture of Forts Wagner and Gregg, the bombardment of Fort Sumter, Charleston, at Hilton Head, S. C., until April 1864, assaults and siege operations against Petersburg and Richmond, the mine Explosion at Petersburg, Chaffin's Farm, New Market Heights, Fair Oaks, and the fall of Petersburg and Richmond on April 2-3, 1865.Full TranscriptOrder by the Commander of the Military Division of the Mississippi IN THE FIELD, SAVANNAH, GA., Jan.
